High Stakes

Victor is a hit man who has been trying to get out of business for years. His boss, Mario Colletta, keeps bringing him back. Also, this time.

Victor is supposed to get back money that was stolen from his boss by Boris Nikolic. However, Boris is under police protection as he is supposed to testify in court as a key witness. So, the killer has to sneak in as a guest in Boris Motel and try to find the money in a subtle way. He not only gets to know the employee Lisa better, but also Boris's wife, Nicki.
And then there's still the cop sticking his nose in all over the place.

If Victor isn't careful, this could really be his last assignment.
